TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 5, 2007 - In his opening keynote at the Computex computer trade show, Intel Corporation Executive Vice President Sean Maloney unveiled the new Intel 3 Series Chipset family along with several other technology plans that surround the company's popular Intel Core 2 Duo and Quad processors for home and business PC users.
The products enable a number of innovative features for today's PCs such as greater PC performance, clearer definition video and storage technologies that help better protect valuable data. Maloney, also Intel's general manager, Sales and Marketing Group, and chief sales and marketing officer, said the chipsets are also designed to be used with the company's upcoming Intel 45 nanometer (nm) "Penryn family" processors expected later this year. More than 100 motherboard designs are underway, and he expects the new chipset family to be the fastest growing in Intel's history.
